Competition Time – Win a SRT Caving Day for 2 people

Can you name the cave and win a day’s caving activity?  In this months Trail Magazine there is an article about caving in Yorkshire called Underground Overground. Hanna, Guy and Ben were given instruction in SRT in our barn at Stainforth and then taken down a cave where they used their new skills.  The article is well worth a read and has some good pictures.  I know we might be bias but this is a good day out for anyone with a sense of adventure.  Update. The Traddock at Austwick have now also offered a three course meal as part of the prize so you can have a good day caving and then a lovely meal too.

If you would like to win a day similar to this for 2 people then you just need to answer one question.  What is the name of the cave that Hanna abseiled into?

The answer can be found in the article in the magazine which is in the July edition of Trail and it is also on their Facebook page. If you want to know more about caving courses and trips with us then have a look on our website www.yorkshiredalesguides.co.uk


If you do not want to use the form then just email us the answer to the address at the top of the page, put Caving Competition in the subject line and tell us your full name and the answer.

The competition is open to anyone but you must be at least 16 to come on the day.  The winner will be chosen from all the correct email entries received by midnight on Sunday 10th July.  The prize caving day and meal will be arranged for a date suitable for the winner, subject to availability, and will need to be claimed by 31st December 2011.  The meal is food only and you will need to buy your own drinks. There are no cash alternatives.

SRT Trip to look out into Alum Pot Shaft

Today was the first trip underground using SRT for one of our Go Dales Project groups.  They had been underground on previous sessions and also had some time learning the SRT skills in our Barn. This trip let them put those skills into practice and they got an idea of where  SRT can enable them to go.  If you want to learn about these skills or try caving then have a look at our website.

Go Dales Caving Course Video

 

Caving group

We have now produced our first video on YouTube.   It is of the first caving trip with one of the young women’s groups with the Go Dales Project. The next session they took part in was learning vertical caving techniques (SRT) in our barn at Hornby Laithe near Stainforth, Settle. They learned to prussic and abseil up and down the ropes, traverse and pass belays. They used the ropes and platforms in our barn including our new high level traverse and wall. This is preparing them for their next trip underground when they will be using ropes to explore deeper into the cave. That’s when the real adventures begin.
